Every Iowan needs to make a trip to Des Moines and go through the Iowa Hall of Pride. I learned about people I didn't know had roots in Iowa and reminisced about those I knew. It's a great experience for families and people of all ages. I was very proud of being an Iowan when I walked out of there.

The Iowa Hall of Pride is a great place to take your family. The facility is modern with many hands on actives and displays. We stopped before a high school basketball game and wished we would have allotted more time to spend at this facility. The director, Jack is a wonderful host!

It was interesting, fun and very enjoyable. The price was very reasonable. Conveniantly located down town near the arena and convention center. Definately worth the time. Parking is at a premium if there is an event going on.

This attraction is a one-of-a-kind in the USA. It makes everyone who visits, proud to be an Iowan. It gives our Iowa kids role models to look up to and pattern their lives after. Every Iowan should put this experience on their "Bucket List"! You will be happy you did.
